I have used vehicle clip with nodraw, so i don't understand why you need to use player control clip, since tools textures usually have built-in features. [[User:Solokiller|Solokiller]] 11:48, 6 Dec 2008 (PST)

: According to the arrangement of classes in <code>bmodels.cpp</code>, func_vehicleclip was most likely created and used before func_clip_vphysics was created. There's also the fact func_vehicleclip uses its own collision group (<code>COLLISION_GROUP_VEHICLE_CLIP</code>) and is much more lightweight and easier to place than a bunch of func_clip_vphysics entities with a filter. --[[User:Blixibon|Blixibon]] ([[User talk:Blixibon|talk]]) 17:50, 26 October 2019 (UTC)

About texture to be used

func_clip_vphysics

What is the point of the creation of the entity when we have func_clip_vphysics and Filters? --Mandrew (talk) 09:58, 26 October 2019 (UTC)

According to the arrangement of classes in bmodels.cpp, func_vehicleclip was most likely created and used before func_clip_vphysics was created. There's also the fact func_vehicleclip uses its own collision group (COLLISION_GROUP_VEHICLE_CLIP) and is much more lightweight and easier to place than a bunch of func_clip_vphysics entities with a filter. --Blixibon (talk) 17:50, 26 October 2019 (UTC)
